    The statistics are interesting, but I don’t think God is interested in them. He wants us to give from our hearts.

    • Oh I agree and that’s the point. God’s children need to give generously AND cheerfully what the Lord lays on their hearts. The statistics show me that many aren’t truly listening to that “still small voice” of the Lords. God Bless Sister Kathy!
